Experience the ultimate life story
TORONTO, April 28 /CNW/ - There's no denying that the human face
undergoes a remarkable transformation from birth to adulthood to old
age. Now, the 0 to 100 iPad app allows you to see this transformation unfold before your eyes,
with a single representative for every age.
Following its release on March 17, 2011, the app has seen a steady
download rate. Over the past week, since being picked up by media
across Canada and the US, including Fast Company's Co.Design and Gizmodo, attention and popularity has skyrocketed. The app has now been
featured on the App Store's "What's Hot" and "Staff Favorites" lists in
over 70 countries.
The project began as a limited-edition printed book of 101 photographs.
The iPad app, designed and developed by Up Inc and featuring portraits
by Sandy Nicholson, is a digital exploration of the book's graphic
narrative on aging. Beyond the stunning photography, the app includes
select video clips of and quotes from the subjects, which "seem to
capture the essence of their respective ages with haiku-like
perfection" (John Pavlus, Co.Design). The app also features a fun
"FaceMaker" function, which divides each portrait into thirds, allowing
you to mix and match faces from top, middle and bottom.
From a technical standpoint, this project makes innovative use of the
Adobe Digital Publishing Suite, the same tools used to create the
groundbreaking iPad editions of Wired, Martha Stewart Living, The New Yorker, Vogue and National Geographic.
